    Teen girl arrested for burning Koran

    She's an American citizen living in Oregon, not Iran or some bat**** crazy religious country like that.

    A teenager has been arrested on suspicion of inciting religious hatred after allegedly burning an English language version of the Koran.

    The 15-year-old, who lives in the West Midlands, allegedly posted the video, filmed two weeks ago on her school premises, on Facebook.

    The video was reported to the school and subsequently removed, police said.

    A 14-year-old boy was arrested on Tuesday on suspicion of making threats. Both have been released on police bail.

    It has just come to my attention that I said "Oregon", this is because I was reading another news article about an Oregon teen who tried to blow up a holiday celebration while writing this article, I apologize.

    What a stupid little girl.
    Did she not hear about the other people who got arrested for the same thing?

    Here in the US, it would be frowned upon, but unlikely to cause an arrest.

    Stupid, yes...But it is my impression that there is some level of tension between some Muslims and the rest of the population in the country this teen lives in...

    So incidents like this seem likely to occur.

    Yeah, I was all "WTF? They're arresting people for this kind of stuff in the US too now??" Then I realized of course it happened in Europe...again. We had two Hindu guys arrested here a couple of weeks ago when they threatened to burn a Koran and a Bible in front of the Swiss Parliament building in Bern. I rolled my eyes at that idiocy too. Sometimes I really hate living in this part of the free world.

    UK girl, 15, accused of burning Koran and posting footage on Facebook
    this took place in the UK, not here in the states. Their laws apply, not ours.

    Police in the UK arrested a teenage girl on suspicion of inciting religious hatred after she allegedly burned a Koran and posted footage of the incident on Facebook, police said Thursday.

    The girl, 15, has been bailed pending further inquiries following her arrest on Nov. 19.

    I would have to say what stupid people the Brits are for arresting someone just for burning a book. You give the government an inch on banning speech that pisses off religious and gay crybabies then you open the door for the government to ban speech that is critical of the government, military and other ****. I am glad I live in the US.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Well she might get arrested for doing it at school, since that's against the law to light fire to stuff on government property.

    And yet you can burn poppies on Remembrance Day. Shameful.
